In a series of candid interviews, we relive some of the most audacious scams and fraudulent stunts of our time from the mouths of the perpetrators themselves. Whether it’s money, fame or simply an addiction to lying, we find out what motivated these tricksters and whether the highs, lows and ramifications were worth it in the end.
After years as one of the most successful credit card fraudsters, Saqib Mumtaz couldn’t resist one last audacious crime. It came in the form of a $2 million jewelry heist, pulled off by imitating the then ‘world’s richest man’ the Prince of Brunei.
He explains how it all went wrong and he ended up in prison.
